A huge weekend at Alexandra this Saturday night with no less than four classes of Junior Sedan racers having points round for association or series events. Alexandra the ‘Home of Junior Legends’ weekend will also showcase club class action with Sports Sedans, Standard Saloons and Street Stocks racing on the big 570-metre-long race track.

Headlining the show is the Junior Sedan Promotional Association points round for Top Star and New Star up to 1500cc Sedan’s competition. Alexandra Speedway have a great history of top performers in the class and this season the likes of Bree Simpson, Linken Paterson, James Oliver, Rhys Meakins, Dylan Barrow and Jayden Bryant have shown at various events how tough the competition is when one of another and sometimes two of three of them end up on the podiums around Victoria in big races.

Simpson returns to Alexandra after finishing runner up in the Tasmanian title last weekend and Jayden Bryant who finished third in the same race is also set to race this weekend at their home track, Alexandra.

Also in the Top Star field are a number of drivers from Mildura such as Carter Metcalfe, Will Shore, and Cameron Smith along with Lachlan Robins and Kiara McKercher and Jack Murphy from Canberra. All should be very competitive and looking forward to laps on the venue hosting this seasons Victorian and Australian titles for the class. In New Star action watch for Jake Bradley, Will Fallon, Matilda Farrell, Braiden Webster and Billy McBride.

Victorian Speedway Council Junior Sedans, Junior 1200cc Sedans and Junior Standard Saloons all have points rounds also.

In the Junior Sedan class which allows drivers to compete in Modified Sedans when they reach the age of 12, Dylan Barrow, Rhys Meakins and Jordyn Tewkesbury are just some of the competitors to watch. Barrow has been strong in this class this season and could be challenged seriously this weekend if some of the top competition from the North East also enter.

The 1200ccc class is growing in numbers quickly with home club racers such as Braiden Webster, Billy McBride, Sam Cherry, Dayne Murdoch, Xander Baxter, Jack Kershaw and Wil Fallon keen to secure podium positions against the visiting race drivers from other clubs around. Fallon this year has won a final at Alexandra in Junior Sedan racing and Jack Kershaw was developing strongly before Covid arrived and is looking to reach those levels once more. Arthur Hutchinson and Bryce Leek are visiting from other clubs and they and Riley Taylor are the drivers consistently at the front of the field so far this season.

The Junior Standard Saloon series is a perfect opportunity for these youngsters to get some laps in at Alexandra before their upcoming Victorian title this season. Victorian Champion Damon Ingram leads the line-up that includes Harry Cecil, Nathan Miles whom won the Junior Jam at Drouin two weeks ago, Dylan Barrow in his new Standard Saloon, Linken Paterson stepping into Wayne Sheerman’s Standard, Rhys Meakins, and Hunter Carey.

Sports Sedans and Standard Saloons are the supporting categories with action certain to be fierce with Victorian champion Lee Beach in the Sports Sedans trying to pick up victory over Luke Fallon, Steve Kershaw, Josh Service, Dillon Taylor and others whilst in the Standard Saloons Aaron Meakins and his Daughter Courtney will be in a battle with Matt Leek, Brodie Ardley, Jaimi Barber andMatt Davis. Leek and Barber no strangers to winning races.
